In my webapp i redirect "index.jsp" to "start.jsp"
The reason is to check if the required beans are available in session object, if not it will be placed in session.

I read somewhere that a redirect is not good with respect to search engines.
Is this true?
If this is the case what is the good way to overcome this problem?
